Description of the Venice vacation home rental
Quiet, comfortable, smoke free, 2 bedroom, 2 bath home in the sunny SW Gulf coast of Florida in Venice offers a welcome escape from northern winters. Each bedroom has a full private bathroom. There is also a Florida room and an all season enclosed/screened sun room. Several beautiful beaches (including a dog beach and park) are minutes away. The back yard is privacy fenced and there is a single car garage with a Genie garage door opener. We will only rent to non-smokers.

A contract, that protects both owner and renter, must be signed by all adult persons 18 and older occupying the property with the exception of guests. Guests are limited to a 2 week stay each. Guests staying longer than 2 weeks must also sign the contract. Pets must be approved by the owner and must be identified in the contract as to name, breed, color and weight. Quiet, well-behaved pets will be approved. Limit: 2 small dogs under 40 lbs or 1 large dog under 75 lbs. Exceptions may be made for especially well behaved and trained dogs. There are no weight limits or other limitations for service dogs.

Renters will be responsible for the cost of removing stains, odors and/or flea or tick infestations caused by pets. We reserve the right to limit the number and size of the pets we will accept. Dogs must be vaccinated against rabies plus distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus within the last 3 years (or have been tittered to prove immunity). Pets must arrive free of internal and external parasites. We recommend that dogs be on heartworm preventative medication before arriving in Florida.

Amenities include a complete kitchen with all cooking utensils, dishes, flatware, linens, microwave, stove, oven, refrigerator, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, other small appliances and a dishwasher. A separate dining area allows for formal or casual dining. The living area features leather setting, satellite TV, VCR and DVD with surround sound. A second HD TV with a Blue-ray DVD player is in the master bedroom. Upgrades to the TV satellite package are available at actual cost. A king size bed and two twin beds accommodate up to 4 persons. The sofa in the living room also folds out to make a queen bed. A futon in the sun room folds down to make a double bed for extra guests. All utilities are included. Electric usage is limited to $100 average per month. Electric usage rarely exceeds this amount in the winter because we have solar hot water, a new Energy Star roof and a new, more efficient A/C unit with heat pump. The telephone includes local and USA long distance service. High speed wireless internet is included. You can use our router to connect your own wireless laptop computer to our network. There is also a washer, dryer, 5 ceiling fans and A/C.

Many sandy beaches are within 5 to 30 minutes drive and are great for swimming, sunning, walking, picnicking, drum circles, shark's teeth hunting and beautiful sunsets. Golfing, waterfront dining, camping, fishing, shopping, hiking and boating are favorite local activities. Disney/Orlando attractions are a 2.5 hour drive and Tampa attractions are about an hour drive. Sarasota culture and shopping are 15 to 30 minutes drive. For dog owners, dog clubs in Bradenton and St Petersburg offer agility, obedience, rally and flyball classes at all levels.

Availability is for the Winter Season 2015 (January 2015 to April 2015): Minimum rental is for 3 months. The dates may be flexible. A refundable deposit of $500 is required to secure the reservation. 50% of the total amount due must be paid at least 30 days before the beginning of the rental term. The balance of the total amount must be paid at check-in. The total cost for the 3 month rental is $6300 plus $100 cleaning charge. That is a $600 total savings over the monthly rate for 3 months.

Area Info
Our neighborhood in South Venice is a serene area located in a protected bird sanctuary. The streets are lined with mature oak trees that shade the road making a walk around the block a pleasant experience. Many birds call this area home. Egrets, heron, ibises and roseated spoonbills can often be seen walking in yards hunting insects and small frogs. Squirrels entertain us by chasing each other in the trees and eating peanuts put out by a neighbor. Mocking birds, cardinals and the endangered scrub jays nest in the trees and shrubs around the neighborhood. Beautiful sunsets draw us to the many beaches for an evening stroll as pelicans and other water birds head for their nighttime places of rest. The city of Venice is small enough so that everything is within easy reach but large enough that everything that one might need is close and available. There are a number of beach options within a 10 to 20 minutes drive where swimming, sunbathing and shark tooth hunting are favorite past times.
